“I believe … the law on NGOs is very tough and I believe that lots of NGOs are improperly defined as foreign agents. I also regret the media are included in this [group],” he said.
Russian President Vladimir Putin signed into law the bill on the mass media outlets designated as foreign agents on Saturday.
This comes in response to the US Department of Justice demanding RT America to register as a foreign agent.
